Buchanan is in his 6th term representing the 16th district around Sarasota. He sits on Ways and Means. Buchanan holds a frightful 41% current rating from Heritage Action, and nearly-as-awful lifetime mark of 50%. Buchanan is a RINO’s RINO, consistently voting with Nancy Pelosi more often than he votes with conservatives, most recently in support of the worst features of the farm bill. The 16th is relatively safe district at R+7 and could support a genuine conservative – Buchanan absolutely needs to go, the sooner the better.
